Wiggins Slashed For Tour Victory!
Bradley Wiggins has been cut from 11/8 to 6/5 to win the Tour de France following the withdrawal of 2010 winner, Andy Schleck. Cadel Evans has also been trimmed ever so slightly to 2/1 from 21/10. The gap between these two and the remaining riders is huge, with third favourite Denis Menchov 16/1.
"With a slightly new format to the Tour, thought to favour Wiggins as well as the withdrawal of one of the only people who was expected to challenge him for the maillot jaune - points to a potential first ever tour victory for the UK," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Tour de France winner: 6/5 Bradley Wiggins; 2/1 Cadel Evens; 16/1 Denis Menchov; 25/1 Samuel Sanchez; 25/1 Robert Gesink; 25/1 Jurgen Van Den Broeck; 28/1 Chris Froome; 28/1 Vincent Nibali; 33/1 Alejandro Valverde; 33/1 Pierre Rolland; 40/1 Andreas Kloden; 40/1 Frank Schleck; 50/1 BAR
